Helgonleden follows the beach of Bergviken - take the time to savour the view of the blue mountains before the trail enters into the forest, past the old mountain farm of Knupbodarna - one of the best kept old mountain farms in Sweden, at the foot of the mountain Digerberget. In the summertime, there is a very popular café here - make sure you get to taste the cinnamon rolls or the carrot cake here! The hike continues towards the Church of Hanebo.
